There are no rules about how one must behave or express oneself at this event (save the rules that serve to protect the health, safety, and experience of the community at large); rather, it is up to each participant to decide how they will contribute and what they will give to this community.
The impact of the Burning Man experience has been so profound that a culture has formed around it. This culture pushes the limits of Burning Man and has led to people banding together nation-wide, and putting on their own events, in attempt to rekindle that magic feeling that only being part of this community can provide.

Burning Man has lost it's true sense of Freedom. I will no longer attend. In fact I have not attended since they starting charging admission. I don't mind spending the cash but I don't like how the very principals of Burning Man were violated the moment it started costing money to attend.

Every cop for 200 miles knows that there is a better than even chance of finding drugs in a vehicle headed for Burning Man. So even if you make it there without getting tossed on the side of the road there is little chance you will get away with the kind of parties that burning man used to be famous for.......
